Assessments Offered

Grades Offered
Students will be given several recipes one week prior to the start of class. They can choose one cake and one frosting recipe (and a filling recipe if desired), and will need to have the ingredients listed for the start of class. They may also want other supplies, such as food coloring, sprinkles, other decorations, or other ingredients to make their cake unique.
Students will need access to an oven, cake pans, and basic kitchen tools, such as spoons, spatulas, measuring cups and spoons, and a mixer (handheld or counter top). 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Students will be using the oven and stove (if making a filling) for this class. Parental guidance is not required but may be necessary for those students who have not worked in the kitchen before. 

Allergen alert: 
Common ingredients for cake include: flour, sugar, eggs, butter/oil/margarine, milk, baking powder/soda, and cocoa.
A buttercream frosting is made from powdered sugar, butter, milk, and vanilla. Students may add cocoa or chocolate for a chocolate frosting. 
Fruit filling is made with fruit (usually berries), sugar, and a thickener (cornstarch or flour). 

Other recipes may include other ingredients, including nut, soy, gluten, and dairy products. Contact me ahead of time for suggestions on substitutions if needed! I always do lactose-free baking, and substitutions do not usually affect the finished product.
